@1 - It is.
But @4 and 5- yep, still really, really gross habit.
It kind of make sense actually, and in any cases makes a ton more sense than crying out "disease" because of bodily fluids on the sidewalk, as obviously germs and other kinds of filth find their way on the ground whether people spit or not.
But then again, I'm French, so that may explain a lot.
Is this to say that children aren't people? Fuck off. Also, I don't give a shit about your pet animal.
Oh, heaven forbid that the asphalt on which cars that rolled through rooting roadkill, upon which trash doves have shat, get a little mucus on it, too! Won't someone think of the children?

Both words are equal parts right and wrong because the word as used here is onomatopoeia. You won't find "to expectorate" under any dictionary definition for "hawk" or "hock."
As an editor, you could clear up this confusion by using a version which doesn't have similar definitions. Perhaps https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hork">"hork?"
